Sophia aka Sophie has been sent to a reform school for performing an over the top love spell that could potentially expose humans to the existence of the Prodigium. Prodigium are the children of the angels and are in the form of witches, shapeshifters and fae. Sophie finds herself in danger as a group of witches tries to draw her into their coven. She must navigate the world of high school and figure out the supernatural world that she wasn’t raised in.
Hex Hall is an interesting read. The love story leaves something to be desired as you never really see the true motivations within the love triangle. It is also resolved in a surprising twist. It seems as though the author is setting it up to continue throughout the series. However, for those romance fans looking for a good read this might not be the story you want to read. You may want to wait for a sequel to read it.
The plot is very intriguing as it constantly surprises the reader. It takes twists that the reader can’t possibly anticipate. Sophie’s character is well developed although at times it seems that she is very slow to action and has a habit of crying and whinning.
Overall, I think this book is a good read as it has a great story. It is different from most paranormal witch stories as not much focus is given to the witch part and more of the story revolves around the plot and typical high school experiences. There are many pop culture references that make funny one liners and Sophie’s wit will keep readers laughing throughout the story.
